ABC, CBS, and NBC’s morning newscasts on Wednesday spotlighted Texas State Senator Wendy Davis’s filibuster against pro-life legislation, hyping how she stood for hours in “comfortable pink sneakers” to stop a vote on the bill.

Pro-Life Groups Were Wrong to Fight the Ban on Late-Term Abortions

A lot of people have asked me about Georgia Right to Life’s response to the 20-week abortion ban.

Should Pro-Lifers be “Open-Minded” on the Issue of Abortion?

Tim and Gabi and I discuss what it actually means to be open-minded, (it does NOT mean being wishy-washy,) and whether pro-life people should be open-minded too.

Pro-Choice Person Becomes Pro-Life After Thinking About Gosnell Case

This is exactly what I’ve been hoping would happen: pro-choice people that think about abortion in a new way because of the Gosnell case, but not stopping there, but then asking a key question: “Is there a morally relevant difference between what Gosnell did and other abortions that are less obviously barbaric?” A Redditor just [...]

Networks Give Angelina Jolie 27 Minutes, 56 Seconds for Gosnell Verdict

ABC and NBC led their morning shows on Tuesday with nearly 10 minutes of “breaking news” coverage of Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy.
